Bio

Traveling exposes us to other cultures which grows understanding, tolerance and acceptance. Connecting with people to learn about their activities, environment, culture, food and wine inspires Linda Milks. She loves to share her stories and experiences via freelance travel writing to capture the reader and rouse an interest in discovering new horizons. Sometimes it’s the hidden gems that bring Linda the most joy.
Whether Linda travels to Switzerland; Punta Cana; Bordeaux; Italy; Birmingham, Alabama; or Door County, Wisconsin, she finds unique aspects of the area through conversations with the people with whom she comes into contact. She has found there is beauty in the commonplace as well as the exotic.
Linda has recently launched a new website:toastingfoodwinetravel.com. In the past, she was a contributor to such sites as https://www.tripatini.com with 15.7K followers; the local website, http://temeculanightout.com; http://life-uncorked.com, for readers interested in stories about delicious food, great drinks, exciting adventures, and inspiring art; http://foodwinetravelchix.com, a website of food, travel, shopping, wine, and always lots of fun; and http://wineormous.com, a website designed to introduce the reader to wineries and winemakers, good restaurants and some good stories.
Linda serves as Vice-President of the board of the International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association in the areas of Volunteer Recognition and Professional Development. She is also a member of the Wine Review Council, a group that reviews local, national, and international wines.
Whether the story is very local to her wine region or about international locations with unique tidbits about that area’s local points of interest, having fun and enjoying new experiences is what Linda is all about.
